Great class! Scott is an excellent instructor. His teaching style is relaxed making a difficult class enjoyable. His notes and "hints" made learning easy. If you have to do ACLS, this is the place!

This is the first time we used Heart Start for our training. Guess what? We will use them again. David Y. the instructor made it simple for our organization to understand why we are training to help save lives. He's quite knowledgeable and uses "hands on" techniques and thinking to get you prepared.

Lisa was super great to work with and coordinate our needs.  This is the second time we have worked with HeartStart to get all our docs re-certified.  John is an amazing skills instructor and really made the skills testing fun and informative for everyone!!!

Have taken initial and recert courses with HeartStart for several years now, and cannot recommend them enough!! All of the instructors are wonderful - super friendly, approachable, and very knowledgeable!! Even though I can take the classes for free through the hospital I work at, I prefer to pay for the fun & relaxed learning environment. No one wants to be stressed out, during a required course; and HeartStart makes sure everyone learns the material, and gets the necessary support and reinforcement, if they need it! Keep up the great work!!

This is THE place to get your BLS ACLS PALS... it's where I've gone several times. There's no BS... they cut straight to the chase. The guys that work there are paramedics or fireman, so they have loads of real experience. They go over everything and make sure everyone is clear before they test you. They really make things a lot easier to understand. I prefer going to their 2 day courses rather than doing it online, because you learn so much more! They also answer the phone and emails quickly and can squeeze you into classes if you need it! They're very nice and understanding. Prices are reasonable too.  They also have a Kurig coffee machine and provide some snacks!!! Being in the healthcare industry, I need to have my certifications up to date and I'm really glad I can count on these guys. Five stars all the way!!!

I have taken BLS for Healthcare providers 3 or 4 times with Heart Start. They have been consistently reliable and are very competent instructors. I will renew again with them next time. The AHA written test has some poorly written/trick questions and they prepare you adequately for that factor.

Thank you, Heart Start, for your excellent CPR renewal class at our outpatient surgery center.  Ray was a very knowledgeable instructor who provided us with a stress free learning environment in which to refresh our CPR skills. I highly recommend them for your staff recertification and will plan to use them again.
